Reviewed Potato and Poblano Gratin

Nov 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This gratin was a huge disappointment. The Monterey Jack cheese was too mild for the other ingredients. The creme fraiche was expensive and added nothing to the dish. The corn, now that was the hidden treat. I make gratins often, but this one is not a keeper. ""

This recipe is wonderful! I've made it time and time again and am never disappointed. At times I've substituted green cabbage for the savoy and results are equally as tasty.""

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner and my husband and I thought it was okay, but not great. In particular, I don't think the mustard is needed.

I normally make Julia Child's French Onion Soup, but decided to try Tyler's (I do love his recipes). However, this one didn't do it for me. I didn't feel the red wine complimented the onions, and beef flavor should have been richer. So I guess I'm back to my tried-and-true Child's recipe with white wine and beef bouillon.

I love making salsas and cooking with chiles. But this recipe definitely missed the mark. The chiles were far too overpowering for the other ingredients. I tried it because of the OJ - thinking it would add a nice sweet taste next to the chiles. Unfortunately, the OJ flavor was completely lost. Oh well, so I move on to another recipe.
